MK FoodFest - 16th September


The 16th September sees the return of the MKFoodFest to Linford Manor Park, Great Linford. After a successful first year, this year is promising to be bigger and better than before. There are over 60 stallholders booked for the day, with all of them coming from within a 20 mile radius of the venue for a truly local experience. With free entry and children’s activities, it is a great day out for the whole family. Visitors can eat hot food from the selection of streetfood vendors, browse the wares on offer at the farmers market, stroll through the craft food marquee and enjoy a drink from the bar. Throughout the day there will be talks from chefs and food experts, tasters on offer, foraging walks, music and entertainment. Pick up a copy of the event brochure for money off offers to use at the event plus prizes to win. Local charities including the Food Bank will be there so remember to bring along a tin of food for their collection box. The event runs from 11am to 5pm and there is plenty of space to spread out a picnic blanket so plan to make a day of it.
